Next time you're in San Antonio, on business or pleasure get away from the mediocre restaurants downtown and take a short ride out to La Fonda on Main. The TexMex here is much fresher and tastier, the surroundings more pleasant and the service friendly.

Allen Flowers - They are very close, maybe 1/2 mile at most - southeast of La Fonda on McCullogh, which is parallel to Main and a block east.
